Meet the cast of BLUE SURGE

Yay! The drama of casting Doug is over. We have one week of rehearsals already under our belts, and before we know it the show will be opening. So without further ado, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the fabulous cast of Blue Surge:

SANDY - Megan McGeough
Megan is new to the Vancouver theatre scene, and this will be her first lead role in a professional performance. She is currently pursuing a degree in English Literature and Film Studies at UBC and finds that both these fields of study helpful to “becoming“ other people on stage. She was last involved in Eastside Ghosts which was part of the Bridge Mix Festival and similarly played a prostitute; both roles she has found equally fascinating because she has been able to shine a spotlight on characters whose situations in reality are often overlooked politically and socially.

CURT - Jeremy Leroux
This Jeremy’s 1st production with Twenty-Something Theatre. Past credits include: Father Brendan Flynn in Doubt, (North Van Community Players) Herman in Sweet Charity (Pipe Dream) , Pat, Padric, Perry in Some Men (Raving Theatre) and Darius in Jeffrey (Raving Theatre) Jeremy is also an accomplished singer and a songwriter. He has performed for different charity events and at the Abbotsford Agrifair.

HEATHER - Tara Pratt
A graduate of the University of Alberta’s drama program (2002), Tara was last seen as Jen in Twenty-Something Theatre’s production of Prodigals in April. Other stage credits include Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love (2009) and Hamlet (2007). Film credits include The Red Rooster (Cinemanovel Films) and the award-winning short film, Food for the Gods.

DOUG - Chris Rosamond
Chris is happy to be making his Twenty-Something Theatre debut. Originally from Calgary, Chris is a graduate of Circle in the Square Theater School in NYC. Select credits include: Trigorin in The Seagull, Gayev in The Cherry Orchard, and most recently Pip/Theo in Three Days of Rain, where he received Best Supporting Actor at the 2010 BC Mainstage.
